    • 10. Round Here by Counting Crows
      Counting Crows is another favorite band of mine so it was really hard to choose one. This seemed to be their biggest hit though.
    • 9. One Headlight by Wallflowers
      This one is hard to forget.
    • 8. Save Tonight by Eagle Eye Cherry
      This song is just good, period.
    • 7. I Want You by Savage Garden
      Was a number one hit for a long time.
    • 6. One Week by Barenaked Ladies
      Gets stuck in your head easily. A great moment when you can finally sing all the lyrics.
    • 5. Someday by Sugar Ray
      Never gets old.
    • 4. Slide by Goo Goo Dolls
      I personally liked Slide more than Iris because it has a more personal meaning but they are all very very good.
    • 3. Semi Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind
      This was a tough call between this and How's it Gonna Be.
    • 2. 3AM by Matchbox Twenty
      Matchbox Twenty is one of my favorites and it was impossible to pick just one.
    • 1. Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) by Green Day
      Besides Smells Like Teen Spirit, this is the anthem of the 90's.

    They are kind of in order, but take it with a grain of salt, I have hundreds more I could easily put on here.
